Give it time: If you have had migraines and this episode is like your usual, then take your usual therapy, rest, and wait out the up to 3 days it takes some migraines to run their course. If these symptoms are unusual or last more than 3 days, see your doctor

Vestibular Migraine: With the Roller coaster ride, you most likely "off set" your vestibular reflexes. Often this can cause nausea and even vomiting form a type of vertigo like response. Migraines are also common. An antihistamine may help and some Over the counter medications for the head ache. Time should also improve this. Se Dr. if not better in next day or so.
